I'm feeling very discouraged today. My weight has not been what I want it to be - or what I think it should be, given the exercise. The eating.... I think it's been alright, but obviously, there's something that needs to change. I have still been allowing myself dessert at night, in moderation (a scoop of ice cream instead of the whole pint) but now I'm wondering if I need full-on deprivation. I would hate it, I'll be honest. My treat at the end of the day is what gets me through a lot of days! But something needs to change. I need to be eating a higher volume of lower calorie foods, obviously. I think the basis of my meals are good - I always do lean chicken or fish, salad and / or veggie, and low or no carbs. I think it's the in between crap that's killing me. The little bites of the kids stuff I tell myself don't count. Who am I kidding? It ALL counts. Every bite.
On an up side, I am seeing tiny little differences in my upper body. My shoulders have a lot more definition. My upper back, too. My boobs look slightly perkier (this usually happens when I work out regularly. I guess it's from the pectoral muscles getting a boost). So that's all good. I just am sick of the belly, hips and booty. It has GOT to go.
Swinging day today. Tired as hell, rough night with the toddler. I think I got a solid 2 hours of sleep. I'm going to try to push through and get the same numbers as sunday, but I can't make any promises.
